Going into her first year of high school, Nanami Takahashi is filled with the hope of making many new friends. After meeting the shy Yuri Yamamoto, she hears about a popular boy in their class: Yano Motoharu. Yuri cares little for Yano because of his past relationship with her older sister Nana, and at first, Nanami doesn't like his attitude either. However, Nanami soon begins to warm up to Yano and takes a liking to him. The two spend more of their time together and eventually decide to start dating. But their love is not without challenges; Yano has trouble opening up to Nanami, since his first girlfriend, Nana, died in a car accident the year before, and she had been with one of her ex-boyfriends at the time.

Finding themselves living in the shadow of Yano's relationship with Nana, Nanami and Yano struggle to keep their relationship afloat amid misunderstandings and heartache with the certainty of their love for each other.

Bokura ga Ita

This was a pleasure to watch, it's been awhile since I have watched something that evoked such strong emotions.

The story is very true to real life situations. It truly felt like I was watching two people go about their lives and struggles as a couple. From the start we have a confession and lot's of character growth throughout the season.

The art was not the best. Nearing the end of the season there were a lot of instances where the characters were missing an eye, and during the start of the season the backgrounds were lacking so much so it felt like they ...

Mixed Feelings
Bokura ga ita is drama through and through.
Most of you will probably find almost nothing positive. The extremely few moments that seem positive are usually completely destroyed shortly after.

The main couple doesn't fit together at all and those who would are left empty-handed.
One could think that the entire story was written by a depressed author who wanted to somehow express his bitterness with this work.

But in the end everyone has to form his own opinion.

Well, some people are into endless drama, for them the series can be recommended. Personally, I've only watched it to the end, because I basically no anime drop.

ah right yes, in ...

From everything it was "compared" to i thought this was going to be one of those super cute animes. And it was, for the for little bit. Yano was that popular guy that everybody liked and off course it was the person Takahashi met. Freaking Yuri, i was thinking she was a chill person for a while, she's the typical kuudere, talk only want needs to be sad however she feels needed.

**Going over what i dislike and liked in detail sooo kind of spoilers*****

I was a little confused when they started to talk about nana-san so much, sometimes I'd get confused which one they ...
